Police broke up an opposition protest using a water cannon and tear gas after hundreds took to the streets Sunday to condemn a decision by President Hugo Chavez to force Venezuela's most widely watched channel off the air. Soaked protesters scattered while the stream of water swept the street, then sang the national anthem as they returned to face a column of riot police outside the state telecommunications commision. Radio Caracas Television, the sole opposition-aligned TV station with nationwide reach, was due to go off the air at midnight because Chavez refused to renew its broadcast license. Police said some of the protesters threw rocks and bottles, prompting their response.
